  Spellcheck does not detect any mis-spelled words on 12.04

Status in LibreOffice:
Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This has been the case since Beta 2.

  To reproduce:

  1) Type out a load of rubbish on the keyboard as well as a few correctly spelled words. I used "vmw;qbjk aoeuasnth aoeu house in the street"
  2) Press F7 to initiate the spell check.

  Actual Result: The spell check notifies the user of completion without any recognition of errors.
  Expected Result: The spell check should highlight each misspelled word and offer alternatives.

  WORKAROUND: Open the dash and run Language Support
  2) Under the 'Language' tab, choose another variant of English and drag it above the US English so it takes precedence.
  3) Click "Apply System-wide" and log out.

  On logging back in, spell check will work.

  Not reproducible in Xubuntu 32-bit.
